For Metcash, Australia's largest distribution company, risk of high-cost back injuries was becoming a concern across its more than 100,000 manual materials handling employees. After rigorous industry vetting, StrongArm Tech was chosen to deploy its FUSE Risk Management Platform - including FUSE safety wearables, forward-indicating data and white-glove client service - across multiple facilities to deliver a nearly 40% injury reduction in a matter of months.
Across distribution centers, StrongArm's dedicated Delta Teams delivered a projected annual value of 642,000 AUD. Based on pilot results and a positive relationship built between StrongArm and Metcash management, FUSE will continue to be embedded in ongoing operations at increasing scales.
"We pay workers to use their bodies for lifting, and so there is a cumulative effect. It’s not about productivity or pick rates or any of that. It’s about reducing the chance of people getting hurt."
